Week started out pretty good, but then on Monday night I was sick as a dog. It was terrible, then my son got a fever and neither kid decided to sleep for the rest of the week. No workout again until Friday night when I got out for a run.
I was thinking of doing a 5K on Sunday, but after being sick all week that was a definite no. So now I’m on the lookout for an upcoming 5K to help gauge my fitness level.
Here is how 5K training went this week:
Monday – Upper body strength workout focusing on heavy weights.
Tuesday – Sick 🙁
Wednesday – Off – exhausted from non-sleeping kids
Thursday – Still exhausted…
Friday – 3 mile total run with 6 hill sprints of 10-20 seconds each.
Saturday – Barre3 in-studio class. Had to take it a bit easy as I was still tired and weak.
Sunday – 6.5 mile run with 5 miles at 8:20 avg pace. This was suppose to be just a 5 mile run, but I finished way too far from home so jogged another 1.5 miles to get closer to home. It was also sunny and 60, which felt amazing for a Pennsylvania winter.
Have you had to suffer through a sick week in the middle of training? How did you fair in the end?
